Cartoons are an echo of the Republican theme du-jour | Letter to the editor

A criticism of the cartoons in the Reporter.

I’ve concluded that the weekly cartoon is not meant to be funny so much as to be a way of sliding in some political subterfuge. At first I was just mildly annoyed. And then it grew to a full-on strong irritation when I finally realized each cartoon was an echo of the Republican theme du-jour.

A case in point is the jab at the proposed carbon tax in Washington state in the Feb. 9 issue of the Kirkland Reporter.

I am not amused or enlightened by these weekly jabs. Nor, I’m guessing, is the general population here in Kirkland. This is not Ritzville, after all. Perhaps you could provide some balance in the papers presentation by periodically publishing a cartoon from the generally much funnier and more truthful Democratic side of the aisle.

Mark Adams,

Kirkland
